    How long does it take for smoking to really hurt you?

    I smoke about 1/3 to 1/2 a pack a day and have for three years. I understand that the time I should quit is yesterday, health-wise. But, on average, how long could a person smoke that amount before developing emphysema or cancer?

    Re: How long does it take for smoking to really hurt you?

    Technically if you want to look at averages, the "average" person can smoke their entire life and never get lung cancer. But do you really want to risk that 20% or so that you will get it?
    Medically, we use the term pack-years. 3 years at 1/3rd a pack a day is 1 pack-year. At 1 pack-year the damage you have will start to be noticable on lung function tests.
